35 Steps

According to many spiritual teachers, all human beings are, in reality, spiritual beings on a human journey. We reincarnate as human beings in order to evolve as souls.

Our ultimate aim is to become fully conscious and capable as unique individual expressions of All That Is.

It is a long journey, but that’s okay because the soul is eternal.

Soul Evolution

The soul’s journey is really a process of evolving. This means growing in consciousness, steadily progressing through different levels or stages of consciousness.

How do we grow in consciousness? Through taking on challenging experiences in physical form. These cause us to make important, “soul-searching” choices and call upon us to discover our inner resources.

But why in physical form? Why would a perfectly happy spiritual being decide to inhabit the physical realm with all of its limitations and difficulties?

It is precisely so that we can experience the state of what feels like total separation from others and from the rest of reality. Only by going into this physically separated human form can we know ourselves as beings in our own right, and not just as … well … undifferentiated blobs of energy. Being physical throws our experiences and choices into extremely sharp relief in a way that is not possible otherwise. This is how we learn who we are and how to become all that we are.

In other words:

Choice and the ramifications of choice provide the essential lessons of life. In a very real sense, you choose to be here in order to make choices.

The 35 Steps

We are here to know ourselves and be all we can be, step by step. And according to the teachings of the entity known as Michael, there are 35 steps to the reincarnational process. The body and personality you have now are merely the vehicles you have chosen for this latest step in your journey.

But why 35 steps? Why not 36 steps? Or 10? Or 100?

It is simply because, according to Michael, we go through five major stages of evolution through reincarnation. And, within each stage there are seven increments or levels to be completed. (Yes, it is rather like a computer game.)

5 x 7 = 35.

35 steps

Each single step requires a whole lifetime to complete. In fact, each step usually requires more than one lifetime. Typically, the entire journey of 35 steps takes well over a hundred lifetimes.

So let’s look at the journey in more detail. We’ll start with the five major stages of soul evolution through reincarnation.

The Five Stages

The Michael teachings describe a sequence of five “cycles” or stages of soul evolution. They are named after the stages of human development:

Each of these five corresponds to a specific level of development in capability and self-awareness within the individual soul. As the soul goes through each stage, the focus changes, more experience is gained, and consciousness expands.

Michael Newton

Incidentally, the same pattern of soul evolution has been identified by the hypnotherapist Michael Newton (right). His groundbreaking research was published in the best-selling book Journey of Souls: Case Studies of Life Between Lives (Llewellyn, 1994).

The books by Newton and his students draw upon thousands of transcripts of people who, under hypnotic regression, have re-experienced being between lives. From the higher perspective of their soul they are able to explain what happens after death and before birth. This includes information about the levels of consciousness through which reincarnating souls evolve.

What Newton and others have discovered is that souls between lives exist in light-form, and that each soul emanates a particular colour of the spectrum which indicates its current level of consciousness.

The spectrum begins at white (all colours) but then goes through red, yellow, green, blue, to deep purple and violet. From low frequency to high frequency. The least evolved souls — the “newbies” — have a pinkish hue. The oldest souls — those nearing the end of the whole reincarnational cycle — have a blueish hue.

Although the spectrum is a continuum, Dr. Newton has found that it can be divided into five distinct stages or levels of evolvement, from Level I to Level V. These can be mapped onto the five stages given in the Michael teachings, from Infant soul to Old soul.

So, for example, souls in the middle (or third) stage of reincarnation are referred to as “Young souls” in the Michael teachings and they are at what Newton would call “Level III”. They will have a yellowish or golden hue.

(As an aside, both Newton and the Michael entity also identify higher levels of soul evolution which do not involve reincarnation.)

The stages of reincarnation (or soul age) can also be likened to the stages of metamorphosis we see in nature, such as egg, caterpillar, chrysalis, butterfly. In reincarnation, though, what changes is not the physical form but the mode of consciousness, especially the form of self-awareness and — as a result — the way of relating to others.

A d v e r t i s e m e n t


Soul age characteristics

Soul age affects how an individual lives, thinks, acts, and comes across to others.

Stage 1 — Infant Souls

Infant souls focus on immediate survival needs. They flourish in simple environments close to nature, such as remote tribes or rural, pastoral settings.

In the context of modern society, however, they can come across as uncivilised simpletons or yokels, and may even be deemed to be psychopathic or have some sort of developmental disorder.

Psychologically, infant souls are naive, impulsive and “pre-conventional”, acting on impulse or habit with little or no thought for consequences.

Because they lack both social understanding and self-inhibition, they are capable of committing antisocial or immoral acts without any sense of wrongdoing. As such, they do not fit well within modern society and may end up in prison or in psychiatric units.

While they may lack the moral principles, social graces and cultural understanding of older souls, Infant souls are in a sense completely innocent, being without pretense or agenda.

Stage 2 — Baby Souls

In contrast to Infant souls, Baby souls think a great deal about the rights and wrongs of their actions. Their lives are about safety, security, structure and order — rigidly so. They like to live in communities that are highly principled and “civilized” (think of the Amish).

Baby souls come across to older souls as rather “square” – strictly conventional and conformist. Both their beliefs and their actions are largely rule-bound, so they are often ultra-conservative, traditionalist, orthodox, upright, moralistic, religiously devout, and mindful of law and order.

That said, they will occasionally give in to temptation, or temper tantrum, and break the rules themselves — but then might find themselves tortured with guilt and shame.

They are acutely aware of the rights and wrongs of people’s actions, including their own, though they have little insight into the motives behind them. Bad behaviour is sinful, and that’s that.

Stage 3 — Young Souls

Young souls tend to be extravert, outward-bound, worldly, frenetically energetic, brash, competitive, political, ambitious and individualistic. Life at this stage is about thinking for oneself and asserting oneself as an individual.

Young souls are more ego-driven than others, keen to make their mark in the world. They are generally attracted to some form of worldly success — fame, fortune, power, glory. In fact, they are more fearful of death than souls at other stages, and those who aren’t sure about life after death may be anxious to make a big impact on the world stage, to create some kind of symbolic immortality for themselves.

Young souls cling to their own opinions, with a certainty that their own perspective is the right perspective, and their way ahead is by far the best way. They are very aware of their own agenda but do not really question it.

Stage 4 Mature souls

Mature - woman

Mature souls tend to be more reflective than younger souls, with a growing understanding of self, growing empathy for others, and a desire for authenticity in both. Life is less about proving oneself, and more about exploring “right relationship”.

Mature soul consciousness is no longer egocentric, in the sense of being limited to one’s own perspective and agenda, but is capable of accommodating multiple perspectives and different agendas. In fact, there is now a tension between “what I want” and “appreciating what you want,” or between the personal and the interpersonal.

This makes life much more complicated — sometimes overwhelmingly so. On the one hand, mature souls reject narrow-minded values. Yet on the other hand, they are able to empathise with whoever holds those same values. Fixed opinions are replaced by a sense of ever-shifting perspectives — “It all depends on how you look at it”.

This disappearance of solid ground can be hugely stressful, but it kicks off a search for deeper meaning and self-understanding, whether through art, psychology, philosophy or spirituality.

Mature souls tend to question everything, including their own motives, and are prone to do a lot of soul-searching (literally).

Stage 5 — Old Souls

mooji 140

Old souls tend to exude some degree of depth, gravitas or wisdom that is quite obvious. In children, it can be most striking (think: old head on young shoulders) For having moved beyond the stresses and conflicts of the Mature soul, Old souls have a growing sense of inner peace and freedom — the freedom to enjoy being very much in the world, but not of it.

Compared to younger souls they are relatively calm, measured, untroubled and stable, unattached to social structures and cultural expectations, being sure of their own existence and inner strengths and their compassion for others.

On the other hand, finding themselves in a world that is so conflicted, chaotic, frantic, and superficial can be utterly depressing.

For Old souls, the aim of life is to find true self-expression and fulfillment. As such, they tend to go their own unique way in life, letting go and letting be, in a detached way that may seem very weird and eccentric to younger souls.

Late-stage old souls find themselves consciously participating in the evolution of all-that-is, and often focus on teaching spiritual wisdom with great compassion.

Note: These descriptions emphasise the differences between stages. In reality, though, there is a gradual blend from one stage to the next. A person at the start of the Mature stage, for example, will act mostly like a Young soul but with elements of Mature soul nature beginning to emerge.

The lessons of each stage

Here are the five stages of soul evolution through human reincarnation, together with the typical learning experiences associated with each stage:

soul age focus 2 450

So we begin reincarnating as Infant souls, complete novices at physical existence. At this first stage we are largely in a state of incompetence and terror, frankly. But through experiences and choices we learn and grow. We steadily progress from being Infant souls to Baby souls to Young souls to Mature souls. Finally, we enter the fifth stage as accomplished Old souls, the experts of human existence.

As infant souls we learned about choices having to do with survival, as baby souls choices having to do with moral codes and ethics, as young souls choices having to do with mastery of achievement, as mature souls choices having to do with relationships, and as old souls choices having to do with the nature of oneness with the Tao. An infant soul would therefore not understand the choices of an old soul although an older soul would likely have more understanding of the nature of younger soul choice having had them.

To look at each stage in more detail see:

Stage 1. The Infant Soul

Stage 2. The Baby Soul

Stage 3. The Young Soul

Stage 4. The Mature Soul

Stage 5. The Old Soul

Soul levels in the human population

The six or seven billion people on the planet span the whole range of stages, but the average is said to be somewhere just past the mid-point of stage 3 (see chart below). In other words, this world is currently dominated by Young souls whose primary focus is competitive self-advancement.

The seven steps within each stage

Within each stage there are seven discrete steps to go through. In the Michael teachings, they are called “levels”, so in each stage we proceed from 1st level to 7th level. Calling these “levels” can be a bit confusing (since Newton refers to the five major stages as “levels”), so I sometimes prefer to call them “steps”.

So each stage of reincarnation has seven distinct learning steps. For example, we begin the whole journey at step 1 as Infant souls, learn that lesson, then undertake step 2 as Infant souls, and so on. On completing the 7th step of the Infant stage, we then begin the 1st step of the Baby stage.

35 steps

The early steps in any stage are about experiencing life at this new stage of evolution, learning the essential lessons through appropriate experiences.

The later steps are about expressing those lessons, demonstrating this level of consciousness in action.

For example, in the Young soul stage, the first three steps — from 1st level Young soul to 3rd level Young soul — are about discovering the meaning of free will and self-determination; the last three steps — 5th level Young soul to 7th level Young soul — are about demonstrating the meaning of free will and self-determination in action. (The middle step — 4th level Young soul — is about consolidating the lessons learned.)

The first step or level of any stage is like putting a toe in the water; the final step is like teaching others how to swim:

1st Level Initiation into the new stage. “Toe in the water.” First glimpses of the new consciousness. We come to recognise that there is a whole new way of being ahead of us, and we respond to the call, even though as yet it is beyond our comprehension.
2nd Level Building foundations. Wading in and out. Comparing and contrasting the old and new consciousness. We come to understand what is essential and different about this higher level, though it still remains ‘ahead’ of us, not quite within us.
3rd Level Rising to the challenge. Taking the plunge. We determinedly commit ourselves to actively embrace and explore the new consciousness.
4th Level Integration. Relaxing into it, “enjoying the water.” We now identify ourselves with this way of understanding self, life and others – this is our truth. We fully incorporate and consolidate the new consciousness into our own being.
5th Level Expression. Splashing about – “Look at me!” We openly share and communicate our new, true sense of self and of life’s meaning. We feel drawn to broadcast our truth, to “go public” with it.
6th Level Demonstration. Giving value and benefit to others. “Being a life guard.” Our new consciousness is put to the test. We also burn off any outstanding karma incurred in the earlier steps of this stage.
7th Level Mastery. Peak performance. We have complete understanding and control of our awareness at this level. We know exactly what we are doing. We may feel like a role model. Hmm… What’s next?

This sequence of seven steps is repeated through each stage, making 35 steps in all from the beginning of reincarnation to the end.

In case you’re wondering, I’m at the 5th level of the Mature soul stage. My current life’s lesson is about outwardly expressing my Mature soul consciousness.

a d v e r t i s e m e n t


Many lives

So, we start our evolutionary journey at level 1 of stage I (as “1st Level Infant souls”) and end it at level 7 of stage 5 (as “7th Level Old souls”).

There are 35 steps in all. And each single step requires at least one lifetime to complete.

A single step can be done in one lifetime but often that’s too big a stretch, so an initial life may undertaken as a taster, followed by one or two more which really go for it.

Sometimes a life is interrupted, and the soul will just have to start over in the next life. Also, some lives are undertaken for reasons other than the specific intent to develop. For example, one lifetime might be undertaken primarily to assist another soul in their development. And some lives are taken on primarily for the death experience, for karmic reasons. These can be very short, of the order of days, weeks or months.

Taking into account all the gaps spent in the non-physical state between lives, a single step is typically accomplished in about 100-300 years of Earth time.

The whole journey of 35 steps usually takes well over 100 lifetimes. Hence, the whole journey is likely to take of the order of 7,000-8,000 years, but possibly a lot more if the population is low and opportunities to incarnate are few.

Questions and Answers

Coming back again and again sounds dreadful. Why don’t we just give up and be done with it? Can’t I just decide that this is my last time?

You cannot skip any of the steps, nor would you want to (from the soul’s perspective). You wouldn’t rent a movie but then skip to the final credits just to avoid the whole process of sitting through the movie. In fact, it’s more like a computer game. You are playing the game because you want to, and at some level you actually love it. And you know perfectly well that you need to master one level before you can move on to the next level. That’s what the game is all about.

Who says?

There’s no tyrannical deity controlling the game, forcing you to keep at it, deciding who gets to “graduate” and who doesn’t. It’s just the natural dynamic of life and the evolution of consciousness. A tadpole cannot suddenly transform into a full-grown frog. A baby human cannot suddenly take on a professional career or family responsibilities. There’s a natural, inevitable sequence to go through. And we’ve all signed up for it.

But why? What’s it all about?

Well, at the level of spirit or essence, all is one, all is love, all is joy. This is all very nice, but consciousness longs to experience more and more of what there is to experience, the utter richness and fullness of life.

How does it do that?

By fragmenting into zillions of conscious entities, each of whom has its own experiences and perspective, and each of whom can make its own choices about what to experience. Any soul can choose to continue being submerged in all-that-is, albeit with little sense of self. Alternatively, any soul can choose to undergo the experience of life in a separate physical form, interacting with other souls in their own physical forms. This is the ultimate way to experience oneself as a self.

And that’s why we are here?

We have all made this choice: to use the human form as a vehicle to help us become more conscious of ourselves as the amazing beings we are. The aim is to experience every possible experience that enables us to emerge more and more consciously and fearlessly as ourselves. We begin as helpless infants for whom the experience of separate existence is quite terrifying. But we end as autonomous, self-realised beings for whom human existence is the most amazing way of being, feeling joyful and free and sharing love with the whole of life.

    I went to the Mellen-Thomas Benedict site and listened to the free CD of his talk in L.A. I am still thinking about most of what he said, but he did raise a question in my mind about the “lineage” of reincarnation. Until recently, he said, we were all reincarnating along blood lines. But now that families do not stay together so much, we may reincarnate into “the matrix of our issues.” Now, if you have come to the end of your blood line, there is no choice but to do this. In my case, my husband and I were both the only surviving child of our parents, his sister and my brother dying in infancy. We had four children, but one died in his 30s, and the other 3 have–by choice/inability–never had children (and only one married.) My husband is deceased, and we were all the last of our blood line. Do you have any idea where I and the children are likely to reincarnate in order to continue our unfoldment?

    • 2 Ama Nazra 25 Oct 2015 at 9:17 pm

      Hi Sister Grumpy,

      We don’t usually reincarnate along bloodlines. We can, and do, choose to reincarnate within our soul family group, which also includes people with physical bodies from other genetic backgrounds. We incarnate within groups that are learning the same, or similar, life lessons. We play different roles for each other each lifetime, so that your parents might be your children next time, or your children your parents, or people you love profoundly this time around you want nothing to do with in the next lifetime. The person who hurt you most this lifetime might actually be your best friend, who you chose to help you learn a painful lesson about Love and Forgiveness. It’s very complicated and very simple.

      Bloodlines die out all the time, and others are constantly created. Our bodies have have nothing to do with our spiritual selves except as the vehicles we experience reality in. Where you will be in the next life, and between lives, is back with your soul family. No one is ever lost, we all belong to each other and we all work together towards the same goal – which is Love.

      Love & Peace
      Ama Nazra

      • 3 Ken Kaplan 26 Oct 2015 at 5:11 pm

        I agree with Ama. Not sure where T M-B got his info. My understanding is that although we tend to follow our soul group, different experiences from all humanity are important so physical bloodlines would not be primary.

    Thanks for the discussion. I hope the changes you see can happen peacefully.

    This is regarding suicide as asked by Ken. I couldn’t find the said question to add the reply as website, seems like, archived the previous questions. I couldn’t find Barry’s given link as well.

    My view.
    Eastern religion gives a lot of importance to Nishkam Yoga; Bhagavad Gita says its the finest of all yoga. Its doing ones duty with out expecting the fruits of action. Desire –> Expectation –> attachment. There is a verse in Gita to the effect, “even if one destroys whole 3 worlds, without any attachment in doing his duty, he is not bound by its karma.”

    All souls reaching a particular stage must have gone through myriad of experiences including suicide, may be multiple times. Suicide is an experience as well in itself, as being a cannibal or a saint to an equal measure. Suicide not being looked upon favorably, comes from the idea of free will and later from its logical deductions. [There is some studies done on free will by Benjamin Libet, also with fMRI and currently in theoretical physics towards consciousness and quantum mechanics.}

    The inclination is justified quite well as the illusion of free will is a major determinant for the application of the “Law of Cause and Effect,(law of Karma)”, which is one of the basic rules of the Game. So its not wise to spill the beans early in the Play; if we look through a Guide’s/Master’s perspective.

    Thanks.

    • 6 Ken Kaplan 30 Aug 2015 at 5:40 pm

      Joe,

      I’m not sure about the fee will piece. I did not mean to imply that the Universe has a judgment around it. I agree it is an experience and usually one chooses to repeat the curriculum .But my Guru talked about “karmic whiplash” (God accrues interest) and in Destiny of Souls The Higher Guides (Council of Elders) made it clear they were not happy over a soul who resorted to suicide quite often. Divine Love is deep, unfathomable and unconditional but can appear stern when needed.

      In talking with angels and other like beings, I get that at the lower levels free will exists. In Joel Whitten’s “life Between Life”, he came across a woman whose contract was to have great success but instead got involved with drugs and alcohol, went off a cliff and died and completely messed up her plan. The woman who appeared before him (he was a hypnotherapist for Life Between Life regression) was an “emergency incarnation” her guides had assembled to put her back on track.

      I think at the highest levels there may not be free will. But I have seen in my own life warnings (when I fell into mental illness) a great deal was at stake by continuing in a certain direction. I think of it in two ways. One model is quantum mechanics in which everything is probability, but some probabilities are much more fixed than others. The other in conjunction is the oscilloscope in which lines (probabilities) not only within but between everyone are constantly adjusting to one another. But this happens within a framework that cannot be “jumped”.

      Part of the Earth trip imo opinion is how does one align with the doership of the God self. I have heard good psychics say, “You are a year behind”.

      So I don’t know. I see certain things moving. I see how things are put into place. An old girlfriend I had not seen in 17 years showed up at church today. Did “I” do that? absolutely not. Certain timings, many, are clearly the work of the God Self. But I do see some small amount of wiggle room for choice. It seems to spice up the game.

      There is a chapter in Yogananda where he saves a deer at his school from illness. The deer appears in a dream and says “let me go, you are preventing me from moving on which I need to do”. Was the mistake built in?

      Again. I revere ancient texts, but there is a lot of experiential things happening which seem to be clarifying these things. We could say, “But the movie has already been in the can”. Yes. But which movie? If all are probabilities within a range, then there are many possible outcomes, or some. How it ends up to a degree might depend to an extent on us. How much? I don’t know.

        Hello Ken,

        Meeting your GF after 17 years is not purely accidental. lol

        “We meet only those people with whom our meeting is predestined. Duration of association with each person is also preordained. One should not grieve if one is separated or if the association does not last long.” – Neem Karoli Baba.

        Thanks.

      • 9 Joe 31 Aug 2015 at 2:19 pm

        Well, let me have the privilege to introduce Neem Karoli baba to the group who doesn’t recognize him.

        He was a mystic lived in India, active between 1950-70s,and died in 1973. He gathered fame through his western devotees like Ram Dass and Dr. Larry Brilliant. Ram Dass (Richard Alpert) was a Harvard psychologist and Larry was a physician who later participated in smallpox eradication program and google’s philanthropic arm, google.org as CEO. Both are still living and giants in their fields, so stories about baba cant be refuted as myths. Both gives public talks to prominent forums like TED.

        This is an excerpt/link on how Larry Brilliant first met baba; from d book “Miracle of Love.”

        Thanks.

      • 10 barry 02 Sep 2015 at 8:04 am

        Ah, I know that story very well. Used many times on Enlightenment Intensives. Yep, Neem Karoli Baba – a highly evolved Old King I believe.

      • 11 Ken Kaplan 02 Sep 2015 at 1:06 pm

        Thank you for the reintroduction. We’ve discussed him before. Although he was not my “primary” Guru. I always had a very profound connection to him. IN 1992-1995 he appeared to me in a powerful series of dreams, one of which was perhaps one of the top two “Guru ‘ dreams I ever had.

        His presence ( It used to be primarily my Guru, Anandamurti, who came to me in dreams), was part of a grand teaching that Guru was not the form, but a Universal frequency using the form. When my Guru died, I had lingering issues with him because of certain events, so the real Guru, that which is everywhere and everything, just switched forms. Neem Karoloi Baba’s presence in my perception was much gentler and became a form I could work with and let in.

        It was quite an extraordinary experience. That dream is here.I still use his last command to me as it still rings in my ears. What is true for one is true for all from the Higher Self.

        “The sharp, piercing chord of that call, responding to the seeds of my dreams, and not yet germinated with the appearance of the Guru beyond his physical death in the channeled state, came to me on a September morning in 1992. Anandamurti had always been in my dreams, but on this morning, something equally auspicious happened, something that would take me much time to fathom its full import and purpose. I had a dream, but not with my “Baba”. It was with Ram Das’ Guru, Neem Karoli Baba. In the dream I recalled that Ram Das had written that one of the most powerful moments of grace you could receive from his Guru was to catch the Guru’s gaze and have him hold it on you. In the dream, a cranky Ram Das was setting up a sixteen- millimeter camera in a small room. He kept muttering and commenting that he didn’t know why this was being done, why I was supposed to get this, but he set it up nd then was gone. As I watched the film begin to roll, Neem Karoli Baba appeared looking exactly like his pictures, wearing only his famous blanket. Almost immediately he turned, straightened up, and looked right at me. His gaze was steady and he held me in it for over thirty seconds, pointedly making it clear that it he was fixated on me. This dream, this encounter, this moment was to be for me. Then the scene began to shift and I was in his country, a land possessed and protected by him. It was green and lush, expansive and quiet, and made up mostly of soft grassy fields, with some woods. Then, like a beautiful song, in short, exact “edited” pieces, the various parts of me, all of them from my psyche, began to call and speak out. The scene unfolded as a kaleidoscope, as each piece represented by someone I knew or someone well known, took his turn. In the safety of his land, each called out their truth in a mesmerizing, flowing sequence.

        Suddenly, Neem Karoli Baba appeared before me again, only this time, not on film. He looked me right in the eye, his presence radiating an incredible force, and said, ”Whatever you have, whatever you need, whatever you do…YOU BRING IT TO ME”.

        I woke up with a jolt, the echo of his message resounding in my head. As I sat up, with my head in my hands, my body flooded with energy, I felt my center at my solar plexus, known as the third chakra, on fire. The Divine energy had been so aroused that the flame of it literally “lit up” my stomach area like a huge incandescent candle. I couldn’t believe it. The sensation was so visceral and real. I was “buzzing” uncontrollably. I put my head in my hands, swept away by the immense power of what had just occurred, and said to myself, “I have to write a book about this stuff”. At that moment something gave way, and I knew at some time, somewhere, my story was important enough to tell and share publicly.

      • 13 SunGoddess 31 Aug 2015 at 11:38 pm

        Ken do you have any insight on how aliens play into all of this? I Understand that we are all spiritual beings on a human journey. But I have read quite a bit about the Anunnaki and the decendents of them with -O neg blood. The Queen and all the royals have -O neg blood. Or just aliens in general, what about the ancient pyramids and the writings that they contain? I’ve read that aliens brought us here to planet earth, I know it sounds far fetched, but something has left behind quite a bit of information. Is there a way to piece this all together? I guess we’re all aliens👽 to a certain extent, but the technology they had hundreds of 1000’s of years ago we’re just now getting. Are the aliens spiritual beings as well?

      • 14 Ken Kaplan 01 Sep 2015 at 7:09 am

        Here is my take from studying with a channeled Master presence (one of many I have worked with) for 7 years. The distinction of issues of “aliens, etc” is part of the game of the separation of the mind if any fear is involved. Since all are one and at the highest level everything is agreed upon, there is nothing to fear. All are expressions of Source.

        It is, however, more generally accepted that certain star systems, Sirius, Pleiades, Arcturus have played strong generative and supportive roles regarding human development while the Orion system has in part been rather negative. In the last 5 years I with others (and many before me earlier) have intensively off and on been working with ET guidance, especially the Arcturians. Barbara Marciniak’s works , including the classic “Bringers of the Dawn, which changed my life, comes from the Pleiadians. It is also regarded that many light workers have ET “blood or ancestry and are star seed related. That’s you and me, etc.

        I have a wonderful little book which I recently got again called “ET 101: The Cosmic Instruction Manual for Cosmic Evolution, an Emergency Earth Remedial Edition.” They distinguish between ET and Alien thus.
        “An extraterrestrial is a being whom is in sympathetic resonance with the essence of its genesis.”

        “There is no need to scour the skies for evidence of an alien invasion (as opposed to ET’s.) Look around you instead. Look at those who are peddling fear, vending death, and poisoning the planet…There is no point in fearing an invasion of aliens, since the invasion has already happened and the aliens are already here. You would be better advised to fear that no true intelligence will ever show up on this planet. (It has) And you would be better advised to fear nothing at all”

        “Now that you have learned the difference between ET and Alien, we would like you to forget the distinction immediately. The danger in the definition is that, as mental concepts, they separate once again. This mission is not about separation. Nor is it a Hollywood Western being performed by a cast of good guys and bad guys. It is about light and bringing more of it onto this planet. The invitation to enter into light is extended to all humankind, aliens included, for aliens are only extraterrestrials who have chosen to stand in the darkness., like a lie , and wear a disguise.
        (Extraterrestrial is a transitional which will become unnecessary by the completion of this mission. At this point, human will replace the term. An awareness of your extraterrestrial nature will then be an integral part of all human experience, and “aliens” will no longer occupy the planet.”

        Hope this helps.

        Hi,

        A concern I have, regarding the Michael’s Teachings are after 7th level under old soul stage, it ends abruptly. There are many incarnations still beyond, on Earth, who comes here under their volition and goodwill. Like Avatars or Sages in Hinduism or Master Guides according to M. Newton.

        ( A story from Ramakrishna and his Disciples).

        “Ramakrishna had a vision of Swami Vivekananda before he met him.

        Absorbed, one day, in samadhi, Ramakrishna had found that his mind was soaring high, going beyond the physical universe of the sun, moon, and stars, and passing into the subtle region of ideas. As it continued to ascend, the forms of gods and goddesses were left behind, and it crossed the luminous barrier separating the phenomenal universe from the Absolute, entering finally the transcendental realm.

        There Ramakrishna saw seven venerable sages absorbed in meditation. These, he thought, must have surpassed even the gods and goddesses in wisdom and holiness, and as he was admiring their unique spirituality he saw a portion of the undifferentiated Absolute become congealed, as it were, and take the form of a Divine Child. Gently clasping the neck of one of the sages with His soft arms, the Child whispered something in his ear, and at this magic touch the sage awoke from meditation. He fixed his half-open eyes upon the wondrous Child, who said in great joy: ‘I am going down to earth. Won’t you come with me?’ With a benign look the sage expressed assent and returned into deep spiritual ecstasy.

        Ramakrishna was amazed to observe that a tiny portion of the sage, however, descended to earth, taking the form of light, which struck the house in Calcutta where Narendra’s family lived, and when he saw Narendra for the first time, he at once recognized him as the incarnation of the sage. He also admitted that the Divine Child who brought about the descent of the rishi was none other than himself.”

        Where they (Ramakrishna or Vivekananda) are placed under Michael’s teachings? To me they cant be Old Souls, level 7.

        P.S:- I presume, the seven Sages are the Saptarishis according to Hinduism and the Plane of ideas are the casual plane aptly described by Sri Yukteshwar in the book, “Autobiography of a Yogi”.

        Thanks.

      • 17 Ken Kaplan 08 Sep 2015 at 4:19 am

        We have addressed this several times as it comes up often. You might look in the archives. Basically the 5 stages are for physical incarnation. There are according to Michael two more stages with 7 sub stages beyond. These would encompass issues such as higher planes, more complete merger, what we call Ascended Master energy and realms. The mind can barely conceive.

        Nice story.

    This is for James. James I am doing this for the benefit of a larger audience and you are the example. I don’t know if your response was to Barry’s link and info or the philosophy of the site. You will notice over six years of comments on this topic. In them there are questions, answers, references to books, personal experiences that validate the material, cross references to religious and spiritual traditions, etc. Obviously this has been deeply thought out, investigated, and been around the track.

    Your comment typifies what I call the “new atheist” stance on religion and spirituality but since you did not elaborate, you just as well may have come form a more established tradition.

    My point is these types of critiques come from a place usually of someone who thinks they understand or know a topic but in reality not only has very little knowledge of the landscape but also has not taken any time whatsoever to investigate or explore what the topic is all about.

    The new atheists do this all the time. They think they know everything. They know nothing. They make a blanket assumption based on the lowest hanging fruit of the excesses of conventional Western religion. They know nothing about Eastern religions and their sophistication. They know nothing about the vast and diverse history of over 5000 years of the mystical traditions, from the Yogis to the Buddhist Rimpoches to the Sufis. They have no interest or desire to learn of the validity of the connection to what be termed “atmospheric presence” of the unseen, because they are founded in “scientific fundamentalism.” And what is worse, they *refuse* to make the effort.

    Since I am an early childhood expert of 30 years, it is akin to someone who pontificates that early childhood education is merely “baby sitting”. They have no knowledge of child development, of the extensive work over decades in behavior, of neural development in young children
    nor any of the extensive research that validates the importance of quality early chlldhood care and the reams and volumes of research on methods that elevate chidren’s growth and learning.It is a real problem in America. The self anointed ignorant expert. Your response was not only deeply shallow, but incredibly callow as well.(Callow- inexperienced and immature.)

    Thank you for demonstrating a real problem in this world.

  11. 34 Helen (a diffferent Helen) 06 Dec 2015 at 9:04 pm

    Hi Baz & Ken,
    My friend’s brother believes in reincarnation. He says, the more lives one has lived, the more intellectually superior you become. So for example, a Doctor could not be a baby or child soul. Is this correct? Is intelligent development linked with Spiritual development?
    Also on U.K. Lifetime channel last few Fridays, there has been a fantastic show called “Ghost Inside My Child”, about parents whose children have had difficult childhoods, due to traumatic past life deaths. it is a U.S. programme and is worth watching.
    P.S. Barry – Are you Welsh?

    • 35 Ama Nazra 06 Dec 2015 at 10:35 pm

      Hi Helen,

      I too believe in reincarnation, and know from memory, that degrees of intelligence are also a choice made from lifetime to lifetime. Emotional maturity is what we develop through the process. Sometimes we choose lifetimes when we are ‘the’ lesson for other people – such as a lifetime of a severely disabled (mental) person that other people have to constantly look after. The true ‘self’, of which this personality we wear at this moment is only a small aspect, is already super intelligent .. which is why we can choose the life experiences that teach the lessons that provide the emotional growth with the detachment that is required to say, choose to be a murderer or the victim of one.

      There are very few baby souls on the planet these days, but one could easily choose to become a doctor, and with fierce determination (being stubborn is also a choice), and the right incentives, might succeed in what they want. If you scroll back to Lessons of each Stage you’ll see social awareness and following rules is very important to them. And I know of plenty of very clever doctors who have major temper tantrums when they don’t get their own way.

      I was born remembering all my past lives, and when I started speaking, spoke three languages, English, French and another my parents could not recognise. I grew up with ‘memories’ that made no sense, because reincarnation was not a subject discussed in my home. It was not until I was an adult that I heard of the concept, and suddenly everything I ‘knew’ made sense. I am an ancient soul, beyond old. We too exist, even if not written about here in this article. I incarnate by request. :-)

      Love & Peace
      Ama

      • 36 Ken Kaplan 07 Dec 2015 at 2:32 am

        Ama,
        I disagree that there are very few baby souls on the planet. The Us alone is flooded with them. The entire religious right and nearly every Republican presidential candidate are baby souls. The Mid East is awash with baby souls as are huge swaths of Africa. Just for starters.

      • 37 Helen 08 Dec 2015 at 7:47 pm

        Thank you for taking the time to reply to my question. Wishing you happiness x

    • 38 barry 06 Dec 2015 at 11:43 pm

      There is a correlation between soul age and wisdom, but not IQ. I’ve noticed a good number of baby souls in the medical profession. Smart, but can be judgemental. Most highly qualified psychiatrists are young souls. Intelligence is a faculty any of us can work with or not, as we choose. Scholars tend to value it most obviously, but they don’t necessarily use it!

      I’m recording Ghost in my Child. A year or two ago I remember the producers were looking for kids with past lives to film.

      Welsh? No lass, aa’m originally a Geordie!

      :)

      • 39 Ken Kaplan 07 Dec 2015 at 2:39 am

        I agree with Barry. There are many baby souls who are quite intelligent intellectually. Often Soul lessons revolve around having a high intellect but little empathy or characteristics of more mature souls. So someone can be “smart” or knowledgeable” in their field but not be well developed emotionally and be fiercely tribal and be all “black” or “white”.. Ben Carson is a good example. Some of the Supreme Court justices, particularly Scalia, Thomas and Alito also are good examples. Many baby souls like Ted Cruz went to Harvard Law School.

Without getting off subject once one sells their soul, is there any way to get it back? Also who exactly do they sell it too? Is there really a such thing as a blood sacrifice(where one sacrifices a loved one for fame and riches)?

        Where is your reply button? Any way thanks. Everything always goes back to the answer you gave. Im still a lil confused about the reincarnation process. Some on this website have said we reincarnate throughout the same blood line. Others have said that if you reincarnated into royalty that is where you will continue to reincarnate, through a royal bloodline. Does royalty reincarnate as poor regular ppl? Another poster on this same website said that she reincarnates whenever she wants too. It was actually you who said we don’t have a choice? Which is it? Also how will I know in this lifetime if I have moved past this life times lifes lessons. I really don’t want to repeat any of this again. I would like to move on to my next lesson.

      • 47 Ken Kaplan 08 Dec 2015 at 5:13 am

        If you are serious, here it is. There is no such thing. The “soul” cannot be sold. There is no one to sell it to. The technology of how things work involves intense pre-life planning, in reality everyone is safe and here to experience contrast (dark and light) and lessons. There is no way to get fame unless its a life plan-lesson.

        I would suggest reading the older comments where you will find extensive discussion on these topics and the true nature and back story of physical existence.

  13. 48 Ama Nazra 08 Dec 2015 at 5:49 am

    Enquiring minds .. we incarnate where we want to, whether among paupers or royal family, in every country and every society and every religion. It’s all about the lessons we choose to learn, and the people we choose to learn them from. We can stay within our soul group, or venture into experiences with others from other groups, again, its all our choice.

    And the other question .. I agree with Ken in saying that you cannot ‘sell’ your soul, nor have it taken from you. Soul and Spirit are different names for the same thing – our true selves, not the limited personality we have in each lifetime. The true self is eternal, cannot be given away, cannot be stolen, sold, borrow, lost, or overwhelmed. The personality of this lifetime, however, can be overwhelmed and oppressed by negative energies and entities, and people are foolish enough to try and bargain with the unseen, for power or fame or cash or glory, but the outcome is seldom good, either in this lifetime or others. If someone you know thinks they sold their soul, then they are giving away their power, and they can claim it back again .. but there will be a struggle, for something willingly given into darkness, lays a pattern of belief into the energy of the person, and the ego loves it .. anything that keeps us small and ‘safe’ makes the ego happy. It’s not that our egos doesn’t want us to achieve greatness, it just lives in fear of exactly that – and of dissolution after we die .. because the ego cannot exist once we are our true selves again – it is simply a small part of the complex being that is ‘human incarnate’. We just forget its small because it has A VERY LOUD VOICE. :-)

    Love & Peace
    Ama

    • 49 Ken Kaplan 08 Dec 2015 at 6:05 am

      I agree. The issue of bloodlines does not work for me although souls generally incarnate with others from the same group. Souls go all over the map for experiences and lessons.

  17. 56 kenstories1 07 Jan 2016 at 10:31 pm

    Barry,

    This is primarily for you but anyone could chime in. I have been at this for over 45 years. In the last 3 years or so there has been, where I live, and I suppose everywhere an “eruption of light”. Meetups are springing up all over. Powerful online meditations arr common place. The experience of deep communion with Source energy, once rare, is now plentiful. I can access internally and in group states states i used to get only when I went to India. This is stuff I would wonder about when reading The “Autobiography of a Yogi”. Now I am living it. The extraordinary has become ordinary.

    To me this feels beyond the mature soul stage. I think I and others came in at late stage mature and have moved this life to early stage old. This type of “beginning merger” feels like old soul stuff. We are not at the top like Yogananda was, but we are definitely well past base camp and on the mountain’s lower slopes.

    What do you think?

    • 57 mdeking78 07 Jan 2016 at 11:40 pm

      Although you have been at this reseach a lot longer than me I agree with you Ken. I have noticed thay the last 5 years or so have generated an increase shift in consciousness. There is a popular online community called High Existence that I check into on a fairly regular basis which is made up of mostly younger folks in their teens and 20’s but the articles and discussion topics go pretty deep into a wide range of metaphysical and higher consciousness states (in fact its where I first became aware of Michael Newton). I am really taken back at times at how this younger generation views the world, its way beyond anything we discussed offline :) as a child of the 80’s and 90’s.
      I would be interested to know if anyone has done any in-depth channeling with Michael regarding the long standing extraterrestrial influence on the planet. ET’s have long been a favorite topic of mine, especially the research done by Dolores Cannon and the highly advanced volunteer souls that have been coming in for the last 50-60 years. These souls are free of Eartly karma and certainly have to be having an influence, especially the most recent wave (as outlined in her book ‘Three Waves of Volunteers and the New Earth’).
      Fascinating stuff, we certainly chose a great time to incarnate on this planet.

      • 58 kenstories1 08 Jan 2016 at 3:47 am

        I agree there has been a long standing ET presence here. Actually, in terms of true definition, many of us are ET’S or carry ET energy and have strong ties to other star systems. There is a wonderful little book called ET101: The Cosmic Intergalactic Manual for Planetary Evolution (An Emergency Remedial Earth Edition). Its a channeled work. ET is defined as “An Extraterrestrial Is a being whom is in sympathetic harmony with the essence of its genesis.”

        Most ET consciousness that has been sent here to help from my experience are in energetic form or use energetic frequencies. Thus I find it rather humorous to see people looking for UFO’s and physical contact since they have been communicating and working with us for a long time. Especially the Arcturians.

        I’m not so interested in ancient history as I am in what’s going on now. I got involved with a local powerful spirit communicator who was approached about 4 years ago and we started doing intensive work with them. The first contacts were funny because they had no idea about emotions and human issues and were somewhat confused. It was like Star Trek. Later on there was a dual group session in which they put an energetic obelisk in the center of the small room (there were 5 of us) and it pulsated with energy. Then they said the following. “Do not think that this moment is not equal to or more important than the signing of the Declaration of Independence.” (I live near Philadelphia)

        Since then people have been tuning in like crazy, Intergalactic friends show up quite often to facilitate meditations, healings and sacred journeys.

        I’m sure others have been dealing with this much longer than me, but I only go by what I’ve experienced, not what I read. I find certain accounts or information interesting, but if I have not experienced it, then it is not gospel.

        P.S. The kids are doing great, but they don’t know the arduous journey of anchoring the grid for half a century so they could flow in easily. They have no idea of what its like to be a true pioneer and to cross the dimensional divide.

        And if you want channeled information, you don’t need to go to Michael. Everyone is opening up and if you ask, it will be right around the corner.

        I channeled a very high guide for a friend the other day and she asked if Jesus was an Arcturian. The answer was, “Why is it important and why are you still creating separation?” Its all one and the issues of “this” and “that” in terms of that information are immaterial and not relevant. Its just mind stuff.

        As Spock would say, “Fascinating.”

      • 59 kenstories1 08 Jan 2016 at 3:52 am

        P.S. By dual group, I mean two different ET groups were sent but there was a time crunch where they had to switch to do the work. They said there was no time for questions because they were on a “Visa”. I took this to mean the energetic window for their frequency to be in resonance with our dimensional one was tight, and therefore no time could be wasted.

      • 60 kenstories1 08 Jan 2016 at 6:55 pm

        I did go on High Existence and I will have to check it out more but it seems very drug oriented. There was a whole discussion on how to get the best LSD trip. My feeling is they are kind of entry level. The stuff here would be beyond many of them

  18. 61 M 15 Jan 2016 at 9:52 pm

    What about reincarnating as an animal? Or have souls who are animals now been human before?

    • 62 kenstories1 15 Jan 2016 at 10:53 pm

      There are two schools of thought. Eastern philosophy, especially Hinduism and Buddhism teach that Souls moves “up the chain” from simple to complex, that human lives are rare and a privilege, and that’ “transmigration” between forms occurs.

      Michael Newton and the channeled material in “Your Soul’s Gift” address this and say foundationally you come in on a “track”, and although some crossover can occur, basically what you are is what you intended to be. They say animals don’t like the intensity and wide swings of human emotion.

      Regression studies in other cultures reveal prior animal life memories and I have a very gifted animal communicator friend who said she knows of a woman who reincarnated as a horse just to be able to look into the eyes of her estranged daughter. I also know a woman who said she was a Priestess in Egypt who abused he power and was a cat for a lifetime.

      I prefer not to be certain unless I’ve personally experienced something so I don’t know. I don’t think the great Yogi’s are wrong but my intuition at least says once you’ve gotten established in the human cycle, there is not a lot of wild swings back and forth. Once here, usually your trajectory is here, however you started.

      • 63 Ama Nazra 15 Jan 2016 at 11:30 pm

        I agree with Kenstories1. I know of a number of people who believe they were wolves and other predators in past lives, but having never experienced it myself, and I remember all my past lives, I’ll keep an open mind.

  20. 65 kenstories1 31 Jan 2016 at 9:14 pm

    Its within you. The door is your heart and connection to the higher order frequency of your self. Intuition is the engine. meditation is the car. Since in reality you are “everything”, the idea of “here” and “there” is an illusion.

    • 66 kenstories1 31 Jan 2016 at 9:31 pm

      However, if one wishes to deal in the technology of individuation, “Heaven” is what is called “the other side” or the realm of the unseen. Its dimensional frequency is far finer than the physical, the senses and intellect are not equipped to apprehend it. Traditionally one finds it through death, but it can be accessed through Near Death Experiences or deep or unusual mystical contact. Happens a lot, actually.

        The answer is Aquila you would have known that if you are in contact with extraterrestrial beings and secondly they know more about emotions than what you talk about

      One of my rules is I only relate what I have personally experienced. This is a pretty vast place. I was sharing one very interesting encounter. I have also dealt with Arcturians and other presences. Their ability to flow love and guidance is quite extraordinary. We and I are always open to others sharing their experiences in a positive manner as to expand our knowledge and the understanding of possibilities. If you have been in touch with various ET encounters, there might have been a less abrasive way to deal with it. From my experience with them, they do not like or promote confrontational attitudes. It does not serve humanity or the Universe.

        P.S. I have been engaged with Angel and Spirit communicators for quite a while, as well as my own intuitive contact, and it is not unusual for diverse Guides who are not experiencing the depth of the human journey first hand, or are not in space-time, to often not be completely in tune with the ramifications and impact of that journey for those going through it. Some are, some aren’t. Masters who have been here, such as Mary, Jesus, Padre Pio, etc tend to have a better grasp. But there are no hard and fast rules about it. Depends on the Guides.

        i dont intend to be abrasive i am just stating facts.and this one is for you …i am a Alien from the constellation of Perseus,…..you should not mislead people with thinking you know the answer when you dont ..

      Stop lying you are not an alien. If you’re an alien, I’m Elvis Presley. See you can be whatever you want on the net.

    If you had read the above, you would see I specified my response from before and invited clarification from your experience. That would be helpful. There are many here who have ET connections and have taken human bodies at this time. Or have contracted to be here for a while. If there is something you’d like to share more, please do.

    I love this website and it has helped me so much. But there is one thing I just don’t buy into and it is this Alien thing.
    I believe Aliens do exist, but the distances are so immensely vast to make it here. Due to the laws of Physics, you cannot travel faster than the speed of light.Why don’t we pick up Alien radio waves? Why don’t these ‘Aliens’ just put in an appearance. It is all very cloak and dagger and mysterious. There is no concrete proof at all – and to say Aliens helped us in the past with greatest advancements is a mis-service to Mankind.
    When someone says they are from this constellation or that – it is very wishy washy – can’t they be more precise and pinpoint it? The distance between stars in a constellation is absoutley massive – millions upon millions of light years.
    If Aliens are here to help Mankind in secret – well, considering the mess of the world they are not doing a good job. If they are evil, why is this not exposed and something done about it? It is all very conspirational.
    I think a lot of these UFO’s can be put down to secret Government/Military aircraft, mistaken identity or delusion.
    On previous posts, I believe the general thesis is that animals and humans do not incarnate into other species, so why would that be true of Aliens? What i find more believable is the concept of other dimensions rather than travelling through space, but again, if that were true, why is it kept hidden from us?
    As for Alien Col, if he is from Perseus, I am from Uranus.

      I would suggest thinking beyond 3D. I can only speak from experience. Most contact is energetic because these civilizations are far beyond ours in development. If they are physically nearby, they are in an inter dimensional space that does not obey our current understanding of physics. Therefore “travel’ In 3D terms does not apply.

      The proper word for light beings is ET, not Alien. Many of us have ET ancestry or are more directly ET based. We just took a human form. Physical incarnation is not limited to Earth. So many of us ARE the “aliens”.

      Advanced consciousnesses do not want to directly-powerfully interfere with humanity’s evolutionary process. So they must be more subtle.

      As to their effectiveness or lack of such. As they told me explicitly on this point, the game is not over.

      Jesus, Buddha, others came. How did they do in “fixing things”. We must work through our stuff. The Universe assists, it will not do it for us.

      We are the ones we have been waiting for.

        jesus never existed ..jesus and his disciples are to do with the sun and the twelve months ..and ask spirit for the answer to who I am then you will see .

    Good morning from Australia everyone. To some of you I am a disembodied entity that might not possibly exist, if you have never ‘experienced’ me, or visited my ‘home world’ called Australia. I speak a foreign language, Strine, but also have learned English English, which is different from American English (sounds similar, depending on your accent, different spelling).

    I have experienced Pleiadian energies, but only as spirit guides for living humans, one of whom I was told was a Pleiadian having a ‘human experience’. I speak with higher energies, most particularly angels, though I can also communicate with elementals (earth nature spirits – planet bound). I also communicate with fallen angels (some redeemed in human bodies) and demons, who are the enemies of living people. I have seen one ‘flying saucer’, once, in the far distance, cigar shaped, that took off at a 45 degree angle, at flash-fast speed.

    I was also born remembering all my past lives to varying degrees. In this lifetime I have studied Archaeology, Anthropology and Christian Theology, although I do not see myself as Christian (unless believing in the Christ energy makes me so) and am happy to state that Jesus was a man, and that he was also called Christus .. these things archaeologists have physical proof of. He also had a brother called James.

    On an energy level, and through my memories, I also know Jesus Christ is a beautiful powerful being, but he was not a Christian either. As to whether he was the Buddha reincarnated, St Germaine, or Swedenborg – as most Swedenborgians tend to believe, or an alien, he was a man of his times –

    IMO, also my memories, we are all aliens, because humanity only came to this planet, it was not ‘born’ or created here. And, if you think about it scientifically, with all the stories about hybrid human/alien beings, we must share our DNA with other species, or .. as I like to think about it .. other ‘races of humans’ across the multiverse, otherwise we wouldn’t be able to cross-breed.

    The sum of this long message is basically ‘why is this important’? Why focus on what we ‘were’ rather than the mess we are creating of the one planet we actually live on? I would suggest we spend more energy focusing on the message than the deliverers .. it seems we cannot save ourselves – which is why we appear to be getting some help? And truthfully, if the governments of the world suddenly announced the aliens have finally arrived humanity as a collective would probably go into a blind panic and attempt to blow them all up. Not to be recommended, I think. I prefer to be alive, and would like my descendants to have their chance too.

    So, if you are an alien, enjoy your adventure on our planet. If you are a fallen angel in a human body, congratulations, nice to know you are redeemed. If you are purely human .. lovely. If you are a fairy in a human body .. I know, humans are very strange and have little or no respect for nature. The message is the same for all of us …

    LOVE ONE ANOTHER, and for humans sake .. quit the bickering.

    We love you.
    Ama and friends.

      Thanks for the wonderful words. Says it all actually.

    Barry. I have a question. Giving a talk on this on Sunday. It is generally acknowledged that Soul’s evolve in groups. How does this explain families where some soul’s clearly exhibit “baby soul” traits and another may be mature. I understand that we can expand our circle but I would assume most are near same level. Thanks.

    • 81 barry 06 Feb 2016 at 11:14 pm

      Hi Ken
      Do you mean why is it that within human families there can be such a diversity of soul ages?
      It’s true that we often evolve in groups, but not necessarily in the family context. You pick the parents and birth setting according to your life plan – and the parents (and siblings) you choose could be souls you haven’t hung out with much before. You might have to go with what’s available rather than wait for your closest soul mates to incarnate with you.
      There’s also a purely statistical factor. At this time, in a world dominated by young souls, there are more opportunities to be born to parents who happen to be young souls than to old souls , for example. Basically, you have to be born some place. And if you’re an old soul with young soul parents, then you’ll probably want to add into your life plan an agreement with a few soul mates who appear later as the neighbor or schoolteacher who inspire you to see beyond what you’ve been raised to see so far.
      It’s also the case that mature souls as parents sometimes elect to take on infant/baby soul offspring – it really stretches their relating skills.
      For all of this potential diversity in soul ages showing up with human families, it’s easy to see why some families are so “dysfunctional”.

      • 82 kenstories1 06 Feb 2016 at 11:30 pm

        Thanks. I was also reading some of the material about the “Entity”, the direct uplink that we belong to and the Cadre, the even larger unit. So within these “relations”, it is clear there is a lot ton draw from.

        Newton talked about small small soul units and perhaps there is overlap. I Think “Soul groups” can be many like concentric circles. So when I was young I hung out at a camp where everyone was really close. At college I ran into different people. When I got involved with my Guru, there was a whole different core set of people all moving in one direction. But I feel now is when some of my closest “soul family” are a part of my life.

        So I think the extentsiveness of our connections can be pretty big.

      • 83 barry 06 Feb 2016 at 11:38 pm

        I also think we tend (or want) to gravitate to our soul mates, or at least people on the same level, as we get older during a life.

Enlightenment Intensives

A way to discover who you really are.

Enlightenment Intensives offer a short (3 days) but intensive way to experience that which is known as self-realization -- the direct experience of one's true self or true nature.

There are no teachings, no cults, and no gurus. Just a beautifully facilitated process of seeking one's own truth in a group setting.

If you sincerely want to know who you really are, the Enlightenment Intensive process is highly recommended.

Further information

We (Barry + Emma) run Enlightenment Intensives in England:

...but there are others happening all over the world. To find out more, see:
